Continuing their excellence in menswear design, Ovadia & Sons’ f/w ’11 lookbook really sets off the versatility of their collection.

In preparation for Rugby Ralph Lauren’s Oct. 15th Tweed Run, the company caught up with Social Media Director at GandLife Hotels, Steven Rojas.

Video: A Conversation with Nick Wooster

Whether you agree with Nick Wooster’s personal style choices is completely irrelevant. What’s relevant, however, is how well he understands the recent shift in menswear. He fully understands how the younger guy is more concerned about quality and how a garment is constructed then perhaps ever before. This video gives an introspective look into his…

Gary Oldman Behind-the-Scene Photographs: ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’

It’s a discovery even more shocking than finding a Russian mole in the upper echelons of the British Secret Service. As well as being a pretty snappy dresser – in a Paul Smith silk scarf when we interviewed him recently – Gary Oldman is also a pretty handy snapper, as proven by this exclusive dossier…

Rugby Ralph Lauren Bleecker St.

When I first heard that Rugby would be opening a menswear only store on Bleecker St. in NYC, I was intrigued by how the store would hold up against its University Place counterpart. Blogger Hollister Hovey covered the opening, and based on his photos alone, I can safely say that the company has elevated the…

Video: Ian Velardi Fall/Winter 2011

Creating a promotional video for his debut collection was no difficult task for Ian Velardi. Well, at least it doesn’t appear that way.

Nevs model Johnny George is the new face of Burberry’s Black Label Fall 2011 campaign. The shoot has the kind of elegance you would expect from a storied brand like Burberry, and it’s the minimalism of the photo’s that really allows the clothing to stand out. It’s a perfect representation of one of the label’s…

GANT by Michael Bastian Spring/Summer 2012

Michael Bastian’s exceptional work with GANT over the past few seasons has absolutely been irrefutable. If you’ve been reading Bastian’s blog — which you should be — you’ve likely picked up some of his inspirations for his collections this year. For his s/s ’12 collection with GANT, Bastian drew inspiration from the colourful Hawaiian islands.…

Michael Bastian Spring/Summer 2012

After fully digesting Michael Bastian’s mainline “comeback” presentation (I know he loathes that term), I can safely say that Basty is continuing to elevate his collections. This time by drawing in-depth inspiration from the life of James Dean. Some of my favourite pieces from his s/s ’12 collection are the beige knit crew neck sweater,…
